Welcome to ePIC 2011, the 9th international ePortfolio & Identity Conference

Should everybody have an ePortfolio? How do ePortfolios contribute to the identity construction process? How do ePortfolios support the acquisition of 21st century skills? How do ePortfolios support lifelong learning, orientation and employability? Why are ePortfolio mostly still non-interoperable? To find the answers to these questions, and more, join us at ePIC 2011, the 9th ePortfolio and Identity Conference, 11-13 July 2011, at the Savoy Place, London.
